What is your budget, room dimensions and any models that you have been considering?..

and should i paint wall or buy a screen
Buying a screen is going to be expensive than painting the wall.. Few members, (incl myself) have tried grey paint (water based) from royale atmos and it has been a good experience..

If you already own a 100 inch 16:9 screen, then you can re-use that for the projector you are considering..

But given your room dimensions of 17 x 12 feet, the short throw projector you are considering and if you a regular wall(without windows) on eithe side of 12 feet wall, you can easily get a 150 inch diagonal screen.. Approx 125% bigger than your present 100 inch diagonal screen..

Painting the wall for a 150 inch diagonal screen, might cost you approx 5K (or) more..

and also for my old k330 acer any service person in chennai please refer me
There was a recent thread in the forum on a faulty Acer LED projector.. Couldn't locate it.. Will share the link in sometime..

Then all the reasons, you need to go for bigger screen.. Wall paint..:)

Here is a detailed thread for your consideration - https://www.hifivision.com/threads/dark-gray-screen.66836/

better to buy ultra short throw or normal optoma full hd projector
You have a pretty long room.. 17 feet (throw) is more than enough for a 150 inch diagonal.. You wont go wrong, if you choose either..

I have painted my screen using screen paint from amazon (Silk Touch), and personally, I felt my picture looking much better than the one from an Elite screen (at HT demo places). FYI - I am using Epson TW8300, and image size is around 150 diagonal (16:9).
